Brazing is a method of combining two or more metals by melting and flowing a filler metal, which has a lower melting point than the metal next to it, into the coinciding point. As opposed to welding, brazing does not involve the melting of the workpieces. Brazing is different from soldering because it utilises a higher temperature and has much tighter tolerances for the parts than soldering does. The filler metal moves through the space between close-fitting components using capillary action during the brazing process. While being protected from the elements by a suitable atmosphere, typically a flux, the filler metal is heated slightly more than its liquidus (melting) point. Post that, it flows over the base metal in a process known as wetting and the workpieces are joined together by cooling it. The ability to join the same metal or different metals with substantial strength is the key advantage of brazing.

Infrared brazing is a system of brazing that utilizes infrared radiation to heat and melt a filler material to combine two or more metal parts. Infrared brazing gives several benefits over other joining processes. It offers rapid heating and a fast thermal cycle to avoid the creation of brittle intermetallic. It can join dissimilar metallic components. It is a non-contact process, which does not permit physical contact between the heating source and the parts being joined, thus reducing the risk of distortion or damage to the parts. Additionally, it is a versatile brazing process, which facilitates the joining of a wide range of metals, including copper, iron, aluminium, nickel, and others.

Brazing is the process of integrating two or more metals by melting and flowing a filler metal into the joint. In electrical earthing systems varying in voltage from high to low, it is frequently used to join metal conductors. Various industries have initiated to adoption of the process of brazing over soldering and welding owing to the advantages it gives over other processes, including lowering processing temperature and power input, making joints with minimal thermal distortion and residual stresses, not needing a post-processing heat treatment, having the capacity to join dissimilar base materials, and producing stronger joints. Therefore, this element drives the demand for infrared brazing.

Manufacturers in the electronics and electrical industry are extensively utilizing the process of infrared brazing as it is chosen as one of the ideal processes for joining thin and delicate electronics and electrical components that require precise and controlled heating to prevent damage or distortion. As a non-contact, localized heating process that can produce high-quality, leak-tight joints with excellent mechanical properties, infrared brazing is an excellent option for electrical and electronic applications. Therefore, this factor also propels the demand for infrared brazing.

The global infrared brazing market is facing challenges, primarily in terms of a shortage of skilled workers and high equipment costs. The process of infrared brazing needs skilled workers to use the equipment and conduct the brazing process. However, as infrared brazing is a more complicated process than other brazing processes owing to the requirement of specialized equipment and additional precise control over the heating process, there is a shortage of skilled workers, which restraints the use of this process. Furthermore, the infrared brazing process facilitates the use of specialized equipment, which can be costly to purchase and difficult to maintain. Thus, these challenges restrict the growth of the global infrared brazing market.

The outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic substantially affected the global infrared brazing market. The imposition of strict lockdowns, travelling restrictions, and social distancing measures across several countries hindered many companies' manufacturing capacities and caused a shortage of skilled personnel. The pandemic caused disturbances in supply chains and distribution of goods and services, which highly hit the production and distribution of infrared brazing specialized equipment. Moreover, many infrared brazing service providers were forced to shut down or lower their operations owing to the worldwide lockdown, which further affected the provision of infrared brazing services. These factors detrimentally impacted the growth of the global infrared brazing market.

Key Market Insights: 

  • Based on the metal, the global infrared brazing market is divided into aluminium, copper, iron, magnesium, nickel, and others. In 2023, the copper segment held the largest market share.
